Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a non-discriminatory disorder affecting people of every age, gender, IQ, and religious and socioeconomic background.
ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting both children and adults. It is described as a “persistent” or on-going pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that gets in the way of daily life or typical development. Individuals with ADHD may also have difficulties with maintaining attention, executive function (or the brain’s ability to begin an activity, organize itself and manage tasks) and working memory.
